A Cute Thing by SantosPhillipCarlo A Cute Thing by SantosPhillipCarlo
A PhotoPass shot from January 25th at the castle Grotto. There's more to come from this greeting, but I wanted to share this not only because the photographer got a great moment, but also because it was the very first time a character called me cute. When I credited my parents for my manners, she said they'd taught me well - and when I also credited her and the other Princesses, she said she was so glad she and the others could help me there.

It was the end of the greeting, and after Ariel had hugged me, I realized I had forgotten to kiss her hand and said, "I'm forgetting my manners...may I?" As she realized what I meant to do, her face lit up and she said, "You'll kiss my hand? Oh, you're so nice! Thank you so much - I love it! You're so cute..." This was what resulted - our eyes at least half-closed and me looking reverent while Ariel looked dignified but also flattered.

If only I had the courage to kiss her on the hand. Usually hugs are enough for me.

Have I mentioned that Ariel was the the one Princess that not only held a small place in my heart, but also gave me the confidence to meet all the other characters I wanted to? It's true! [link]

I'm glad she did that for you - especially since, the way I see it, Ariel had a similar effect on you as she had on me! When I first came down for the College Program, she was the first person - never mind a character - who I could talk to about anything, including the job, and I quickly embraced her as a mentor and she helped me find my feet - or is that fins? Initially, I didn't go to the Princess area at the Toontown Hall Of Fame - just the Grotto.

Here's a few shots related to that:

I'm really sorry to hear that - I don't like hearing when someone meets them on a bad face day because I know they're usually better than that.

Glad to hear that! Honestly, that is the way I'd rather it go - them having a bad face or bad hair day but still nice rather than them looking in top form but not being in the best mood.

Of course not - she's happily married, for crying out loud! But I must confess...if she was single, I'd definitely ask her out.

Depends. I like some but not all of the newer shows. As a classicist/neoclassicist, I'm a sucker for House Of Mouse but can do without Hannah Montana. Although, if I'm perfectly honest, I liked some moments from That's So Raven, Even Stevens and even Lizzie McGuire when I was in high school.

The bangs on her hair look the most accurate I've ever seen them look! Also, very cute photo!

I figured you'd like it, Mika, but I'm still glad to hear that! I think the bangs have always been accurate, but I'm glad this shot came from an angle that allows it to be good evidence of that.

FuriePhoenix Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, I see what you mean, when you look at her face on sometimes it looks like her bangs aren't defying gravity like in the film and kinda stuck to her forehead if you get what I mean? But this angle definitely shows the bangs in a whole new light which is great!
Reply
:iconsantosphillipcarlo:
SantosPhillipCarlo Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Absolutely agree. Although I figured that was just from the humid Central Florida air weighing down even those bangs on occasion, so I didn't think she was necessarily having a bad hair day...she absolutely looks her best when those bangs are gravity-defying, which means it's like she walked out of the screen or the book and right in front of you.

So, I noticed you post Disney Princess greetings on here a lot. How often do you go to Disneyworld? Or Disneyland? Whichever one it is you go to.
